Security Center

When Synergis™ is enabled in your system, you need to create additional firewall rules to allow proper communication between Security Center and external IP access control devices.

IMPORTANT: Exposing Security Center to the Internet is strongly discouraged without hardening your system first. Before exposing your system, implement the advanced security level described in the Security Center Hardening Guide to help protect your system from Internet threats. Alternatively, use a trusted VPN for remote connections.

The following table lists the default network ports used by Synergis™ applications in Security Center. To view the network diagram, click here.

1 Not required if HID units are configured with Secure mode.

2 The discovery port of an HID unit is fixed at 4070. Once it is discovered, the unit is assigned to an Access Manager that uses the ports shown in the table above to control it.
